Rising Against Racism

Rising Against Racism

This session will focus on two different examples of youth-led anti-racist campaigning, drawing on contemporary and historical examples. The case studies are the Soweto Uprising which occurred in South Africa, 1976, and the Ferguson Protests in the USA, 2014, which helped propel #Blacklivesmatter into the international spotlight. Students will be asked to consider the impact of racist policies and state violence in shaping the protests, and asked about how they could support such movements.
